“I’m very excited that D.L. Hughley will host the 39th NAACP IMAGE AWARDS.  He is an everyman’s political satirist who brings humor and insight to the issues and concerns that face us as a nation,” said Bulluck.
    
Hughley has earned his reputation as a true king of comedy. He currently stars in his fourth one-hour special for HBO entitled “Unapologetic.” Taped before a live audience at the historic Lincoln Theater in Washington, D.C., the special features Hughley’s take on humorous topics including: the immigration debate, airplane restrictions, freedom of speech, the price of gasoline, the NRA and more.
 
Hughley can also be seen as the newest host of HBO’s “Def Comedy Jam.”  He also recently hosted VH1’s “Critics Choice Awards,” as well as Comedy Central’s “Last Laff” and the BET series “S.O.B: Socially Offensive Behavior.”  
Hughley was the star and producer of “The Hughleys,” and is also well known as one of the standout comedians of the hit docu-film “The Original Kings of Comedy.”  The best-selling comedy tour and film of the same name launched the careers of Hughley, as well as fellow comedians Steve Harvey, Bernie Mac and Cedric the Entertainer.  In addition, D.L. has headlined several comedy specials including “D.L. Hughley: Going Home,”  “D.L. Hughley Live” and “Shocked and Appalled.”
